Scanned By Howard Osburn Presented by The Wayne County Genealogical & Historical Society
Our Webmaster, Howard Osburn, has spent a considerable amount of time over the past few years scanning the Wayne County News. These scans are preserved in
picture format, as well as text format. He has now completed fifty years of scans.
The Wayne News Office has in storage newspaper back to late 1919.
Presented in these files are primarily documents of historical and personal interest. While all of the obituaries were scanned, only a fraction of them,
which contain historical elements, will be presented here.
You will notice throughout these files instances of poor and improper spelling. For the most part, the files are presented as they appeared. It is also
important to know that the scans were processed with an Optical Character Recognition program, which turns the scan into text format, without the drudgery
of typing. Errors do enter through the use of these programs, but much time has been spent in proof-reading the files. However, a few mistakes may exist.
We hope you enjoy these documents, as they will present a lot of interesting information which would require an enormous amount of personal time
It is our wish that all would refrain from copying our hard labor for the purpose of displaying it on any other web-site. Those who enjoy posting to
web-sites should do their own research and not copy others.
At the bottom of this page is an article discussing the history of The Wayne County News.
Additional files will be presented as time permits.
If you enjoy these articles, please consider becoming a member of our society. We publish a 36 page quarterly newsletter which contains much more of this
type of stories. On the menu page you will find a link to our membership application.
